When I moved from Los Angeles to Manhattan, one of the first things I learned was that I had a lot to learn about pizza. One doesn't stand in line but on line; it's not "for here or to go" but "to stay or take away"; and don't order "a piece of pizza" -- it's "a slice." But those were mere details: True pizza enlightenment didn't come until I was kicked out of my semi-illegal Lower East Side sublet and ended up living in Brooklyn.

Only four people in the world know the secrets to the success of Tony's Pizza, and one of them is George Creveling. One secret is the sauce. The other is the goodwill the shabby-looking little pizzeria stuck in a grove of bamboo trees in Ventura has built over the last 40 years. When someone comes in $2 short, Creveling, a beefy man with startlingly blue eyes, an overgrown mustache and tattooed arms, gives them their pizza with an IOU.

--New York City Mayor Edward I. Koch wasted no time getting to the core of the dispute with Mayor T. Patton Adams of Columbia, S.C. Koch responded to a Monday New York Times article on Columbia's claim that it originated the nickname "Big Apple," which New York City claims is home-grown, with a wager.

California comes into play in the list of toppings and in the decor. Along with 26 "traditional" toppings, California-influenced choices include goat cheese, pesto and sun-dried tomatoes.

They complain about our weather, our food and our night life. What we consider rude, they consider "having an edge." What we consider laid back, they consider lethargic. What are they? What else but disgruntled ex-New Yorkers now living in California.

Drawing card With charm, canyons and a rustic feeling in many areas, it's difficult to believe La Crescenta is only 15 miles from downtown Los Angeles and close to the attractions of Pasadena and Glendale. That short ride is part of the town's lure, as are the variety and the cost of housing. Homes in the Upper Briggs Terrace area range from small wood-and-stone hunting or vacation cabins to palatial mansions.
